Why is it suicide to turn off the machines and subject the patient to God's will? If God wants them to live, then surely a miracle would occurr? I read in a magazine about these people who switched off their baby daughter's machines cuz they didn't want her to suffer; the doctors had said that she could not breathe alone and it would be kindest to let her go. The baby didn't die; she breathed by herself and lived and had no brain damage. It didn't say what faith the parents were, but to Christians, that would certainly be classed as one of God's miracles.
